Airbrush Tanning is a precise technique that uses both fine point and wide point airbrushing guided guns. Our certified Airbrush Artist will sculpt your tan to be customized to your body type. The Artist will mix a customized solution tailored to your skin tone so your look is always natural.
We use private label Organic based solution with over 150 color combinations that will custom mix to fit your natural skin tone. Colors range from light and glossy to full bodied bronze.
"How does the tanning process work?"
The individualized mixed tanning solution is professionally applied to your skin by an experienced Airbrush Artist in a private Plaza Spa room. You will notice an immediate, natural looking tan that will continue to develop over the next 6-12 hours. We use a spraying technique which covers your body with a safe and non toxic solution especially mixed for individual skin colors and types.
"How long is the spray tanning session?"
The entire session takes approximately 20 minutes.
5-8 minutes for the application of the tanning product and a few minutes for the drying process.
"Is it safe to use?"
Yes. It is extremely safe as it actually works directly with skin pigmentation just as the sun does, but without any of the damage! The active ingredient used is DHA (dihydroxyacetone), a natural derivative of sugar, creating a chemical reaction with the amino acids in the skin allowing the pigment of the skin to darken. DHA is safe; it has been tested and approved by the FDA.
"How long will my tan last?"
You can expect your tan to last for approximately 5-7 days depending upon your skin type, activities, your pre-tan skin preparation and post-tan maintenance. Regular moisturizing is essential to extending the life of your tan.
"How do I prepare for my spray tanning services?"
Ideally, you should shower, exfoliate and shave/wax prior to receiving your spray tanning services. Avoid applying lotions, perfumes, oils or heavy deodorants. This promotes even coverage and helps to extend the life of your tan.
"When should I get a manicure, pedicure, waxing or facial?"
Please schedule these appointments before you receive your tanning services.
"What should I wear during my tanning services?"
Whatever you are most comfortable wearing. Most clients choose to wear an old swimsuit or undergarments. Some clients prefer to tan topless in order to avoid tan lines.
"What should I wear after my tanning services?"
We suggest dark, loose fitting clothing to wear home. Try to avoid wearing delicate fabrics such as silk, linen or nylons in the hours after you receive your services.
"How long should I wait to shower, exercise and/or go swimming?"
Do not wet your skin for at least 24 hours after your tanning services. We recommend that you do not exercise or perspire excessively between your tanning services and showering. When you shower, do not be alarmed if the initial cosmetic bronzer washes off. Also, the longer you wait – the darker your tan will become.
